A great way to practise your photography skills without even getting up from your chair 🙂
As part of my New Year’s Resolution, went for my first Photography class (thanks to my Fiancee Shaomi) and learnt quite a bit about the basics of DSLR Photography in the idyllic surroundings of Hampstead Heath. Coincidentally my old workmate Jenny had also booked herself in to the class, so it was a double win for me catching up on old work gossip whilst snapping away at anything that seemed mildly interesting.
The trainer who did seem a tad bit hungover (a couple of cups of coffee within 15 minutes) explained to us about ISO sensor sizes, shutter speeds, apertures and composition. As they say practice makes perfect and he let us out into the park like a pack of rabid dogs armed with the latest DSLRs keen to capture anything that would classify us as being remotely creative. It was a nice warm day and there were people jogging, dogs being walked and children flying kites….so below are a few shots that I took 🙂
